When I am Afraid

Not too many people will admit they are fearful, or have even been afraid at times.  Well!  Let’s be honest here.  I have been afraid, fearful at times.  I experienced some last night shortly after midnight.

A strong wind blew in; I was in bed asleep and it woke me from my sleep.  I awoke wondering “What is going on?”  We must say there are many in our world, and the USA included; maybe especially people in the USA who are fearful.  Fearful of what the economy will do in the next few months.  Fearful of losing our freedoms.  Fearful of what will happen on the stock market.  It has happened before; it is bound to happen again.  People losing millions of dollars because of faith in man’s economy.  Fear is a powerful force.

When I was awakened by the wind, experiencing the fear my first thought was to go to my LORD and turn the fear over to Him.  I prayed, sought His comfort; and He gave it.  I arose from my bed came out and checked the skies; as best as I could see; the wind still blowing ferociously; checked on my son and his wife who were still awake, and they were shaken by the wind;  (You see they are living with us because their home in Joplin, MO. was destroyed in the tornado of May 22); and I went back to bed and slept until nearly 6 this morning.

The storm never ended for me, but the storm of fear was put away.  My what faith in God can do.  God is an awesome GOD.
